Hughes Vs. Smith on Betterhumans

We published dueling book reviews on Betterhumans today.

In this corner, we have democratic transhumanist James Hughes:
Drawing a Stem Cell Line in the Sand
Former lefty Wesley J. Smith is now a right-wing bioconservative, says James Hughes, and Consumer's Guide to a Brave New World will make you nostalgic for when progressives believed in progress.

And in the other corner, lawyer-activist Wesley Smith:

An Epistle for the New Religion of Transhumanism
James Hughes is a transhumanist evangelist, says Wesley J. Smith, and Citizen Cyborg urges followers to be true to their faith while revealing its nihilistic shortcomings.

Now boys, play nice...
